A beautiful funny and engaging story packaged in an equally beautiful engaging and interactive app! Loaded with creative and educational activities, fun animations and sound effects this app gives hours and hours of enjoyment and value.

- Features - iPad -
On the iPad it's not just a book to read. Each page is also a puzzle and a coloring book all integrated in a seamless reading experience. Jumping between these interactive viewing modes is just a tap of a button as you read the story.

Several interactive hotspots on each page with fun animations and sound effects and the choice to have the story narrated automatically or leave it off to read the story yourself.

Pages can be transformed into 6, 12 or 24 pieces puzzles with animations playing on completion of the puzzle.

Or you can choose to turn the page into a coloring book and paint as you're reading. All paintings are saved within the app, but can also be exported to your Photos Library in the device native resolution.

- Features - iPhone/iPod Touch -
On the iPhone you get the interactive reading experience, a separate coloring book with 50 different line art images from the book, a matching game with 3 different levels of difficulty and different kinds of puzzles.

Just as on the iPad the reading experience is filled with fun animations and sound effects and the story can be automatically narrated or you can turn it off and read by yourself.

It also features the story as a movie where the child can sit back and watch it come to life from start to end. You can even use AirPlay to watch it on you Television through your AppleTV if you like.

In the coloring book one can choose between 50 different line art images and select to paint either within the lines of the line art or filling up the whole canvas with color. All paintings are saved within the app but can also be exported to the Photos Library in the device native resolution.

The matching game, with sounds and images from the book, challenges both younger and older children with 3 different difficulty modes. Choose between 8 cards, 16 cards or 30 cards when playing.

The puzzles give you either six different 6-piece puzzles with fun animations on completion or one can choose the more challenging slide puzzles for older children also with six different variations. The slide puzzles gives you an endless variation of how the pieces are mixed and are always solvable!

Ratings and Reviews

Polished, Educational and Entertaining.


This is a fantastic polished app for kids that goes magnificently deep. I would recommend to anyone trying it get the kids to watch the movie first, then if their at the age get them to read via the tab option. Once that's done they will have a great familiarization to the story. From then on the matching, coloring and puzzle games will have a real meaning for them. I love how the puzzles turn into animations once completed, what an excellent goal and surprise for the youngsters. This is the best children's app that I have used to date. If I had only one suggestion to push this into the 6th star rating it would be the addition of some very basic counting. Otherwise it incorporates all the skills that children need to develop.

Good for wide range of ages!


I was skeptical that this would be entertaining for my 9 year old. It's a story that can be appealing to a much younger child. My daughter giggled at parts and said she gave the story an 8 out of 10. She really liked the matching game. On the puzzle, the easy was too easy and she found the harder one for older children a little too challenging. She also enjoyed the painting and the part where you could touch to animate the story's characters. I would recommend this for young children through elementary ages. Most children will find the games fun and the story is cute and silly. A good thing to keep them busy for a little while if they need a distraction.

The best book app


I have started downloading some eBooks to the iPhone to see what the experience is all about. I wanted to see what was available for young kids since I have 4 of them just in case I need some "emergency" entertainment at some point. Quite frankly there is not much to choose in the book category unless you go for a game. Of course, I wanted to be a responsible father and wanted a reading experience for my kids. This app was the answer that I was looking for. The interactivity and design makes it fun to go through the story and the games are sort of bonuses. I wish there was something similar in the adult market.
